Pie Night at The Queens Head in ‘Tirril’….
The Queens Head is an 18th century pub serving real ales and home cooked food.
I had the ‘Lowes Pike’ which was steak, black pudding, caramelised mushroom. The pie came accompanied by chips & fresh vegetables (cabbage, cauliflower & carrots) and a boat of gravy.
The ‘Lowes Pike’ came as a rare shaped square pie, that was well packed, and made with shortcrust pastry.
So the all-important taste test. I got exactly what it said on the tin. Personally though, I thought that the caramelised mushrooms gave the pie too much of a ‘sweet’ taste, but not unpleasant. Pie night at the Queens Head meant that for a decent £11.95 you got the meal with a drink thrown in (choice of beers, lagers, house wines or soft drink).
So in summary, a good effort, a good tasting pie, some may rate this higher, but as a personal preference I’ve had better.
I’d give it a solid 8.0 out of 10.
The Queens Head is reasonably local and I would happily return to try another of their extensive pie range which are supplied by the award winning The Pie Mill based in Threlkeld, Keswick.
